Decent settings for mbpfan.conf for a MacBook 8,2

macbookprofan

Fan-Control-Daemon has been working great for months on my MacBook Pro 8,2 running Ubuntu 13.04 natively but found it getting hotter and hotter all the time. So, I recompiled FCD from source and moved /etc/mbpfan.conf back to default but that really didn’t help. I had to mess with things a little. Of course, you mess with this on your laptop and you could fry it, so good luck to you. I’m not responsible for melted Macbooks.

But, here is my /etc/mbpfan.conf that I am happy with right now. I bumped the max fan speed up from the default of 6200 and messed with the temps a little while changing the check interval to 3 secs.
